Organizations are losing the engagement game
When a crisis hits, many organizations actually see a bump in engagement. We heard countless leaders state that while their team is feeling a significant amount of stress, they are actually working together. We heard countless employees say that they feel good about their employer and how the company has handled the crisis. At least that's what we were hearing, but that is changing fast!
According to Gallup data, in May of 2020, 54% of employees felt like their organization had a good plan in place to deal with the crisis. However, this number dropped dramatically to 41% in June of 2020. Communication, which was very deliberate back in April as companies figured out how to work remotely, has slipped as well. In May, 54% of employees felt well informed by their supervisor. That number fell to 39% in June, just a month later.
This data suggests something that we have been observing. Many organizations started the crisis by winning the engagement war, but now are starting to lose and lose fast. These numbers suggest that 20-30% of employees who were likely to be engaged in May are now much less likely to be engaged in June. Leaders are losing the engagement of their people and the crisis isn't over.
We're now two months past these stats. Where do you see this trending?
